"This is a defining moment for President Trump. But much more than that, it is a moment that will define America in the hearts of our children."
Mitt Romney and President Donald Trump have always had a somewhat peculiar relationship.
When Romney ran for president in 2012, Trump alternated between insulting the former Massachusetts governor and ultimately offering his endorsement. Similarly, when Trump campaigned in 2016, Romney slammed Trump's policies and unwillingness to release his tax returns, but cozied up to him after the election.
"Frenemies" is probably the most accurate way to describe their relationship.
